with Andy Martin and Wycliffe Gordon, this Custom Z Trombone
provides supreme tonal flexibility for the serious jazz trombonist.
Developed with two of the world's finest trombone
The YSL-891Z was developed with Wycliffe Gordon and Andy Martin.
The Yamaha 891Z Trombone comes with 2 interchangeable leadpipes.
The NY leadpipe is longer and was developed with Wycliffe
Gordon while the LA leadpipe is shorter and was developed
with Andy Martin.
The new balancer found on the YSL-891Z perfectly proportions
the instrument's weight.
The chrome-plated nickel-silver drawn inner slide is very
durable and has a quick, sensitive response. In addition,
it is a one-piece drawn slide.
The one-piece, drawn, brass outer slide maintains an accurate
diameter throughout its length, and this type of construction
ensures airtightness, smooth action, and exceptional durability.
The outer slide is fit with extremely close tolerances making
the horn respond quickly and effortlessly.
A one-piece bell has an axial (lengthwise) seam, making it
a continuous extension of the instrument's material. This
results in pure, uniform resonance and superior tone. A hammered
yellow brass bell produces a pure and perfectly-balanced tone
with quick response and extra presence due to advanced manufacturing
Hand-lapped tuning slides
Hand-lapping slides ensures an absolutely perfect fit and
seal between the slide parts. Such a perfect fit helps to
achieve smooth air flow and smooth action and improve the
response and intonation of the instrument.
Pressure formed tubing
Perfectly rounded tubing results in less turbulence and a
smoother air flow, thus allowing for an excellent scale and
Laser-fused pluzuma welded bell
A high-energy laser fuses the brass together for a virtually
seamless bell which allows continuous even vibrations.
The unique slide lock design on all Yamaha trombones keeps
the slide locked in place and keeps it from accidentally falling.
The large, easy-to-hold nickel silver bracing guards against
possible slide damage if the instrument is dropped and also
lessens fatigue while playing.
